Churches of Goa

 

Old Goa

Most of the churches in Goa were built during the time of Portuguese rule, and many of them in Old Goa, which is today a World Heritage site. Goan churches are renowned for their interesting architecture which is a blend of two or more styles and influences.

 

Portuguese Houses of Goa

During Portuguese rule there was a period of 'inquisition" in which most of the Hindu temples were destroyed and churches were built in their place, often on the original site of the temple. The church plays an important role in Catholic Goa's social, cultural and religious life.

Today the churches are all part of the Archdiocese of Goa. The oldest church in Goa is the Church of Our Lady of Rosary on Monte Santo in Old Goa. The style of church at the time that this church was built is known as Manueline after King Emmanuel of Portugal. The churches that were built in the period between 1510 and 1550 are known as the churches of the early period.

Church Houses in Goa

A prime example of a church from this period is the Church of Our Lady of Rosary. The period between 1550 and 1660 is known as the Baroque period, and the best examples of churches from this period are the Basilica of Bom Jesus, the Se Cathedral, the Chirch of St Cajetan and the Augustine Church of Our Lady of Grace, which is now in ruins. The other architectural periods are the Rococo period from 1760 to 1899 and the Modern period, from 1900 to current times.

The following is a list of must-see churches in Goa
• Church of Our Lady of the Rosary
• Church of St. Francis of Assisi
• The Se Cathedral
• Basilica of Bom Jesus
• St. Cajetan Church
• Church of Our Lady of Immaculate Conception
• Chapel and Tomb of St. Francis Xavier
• St. Augustine Tower

What to do in south Goa

South Goa is often considered ‘off the beaten track’, it is not as busy as north Goa, and it seems like there’s less activities to do as well. Sometime it just means searching out what is available, going to the local travel agencies and seeing what they have to offer.

South Goa

On any south Goa beach; Agonda, Palolem, Colomb, Patnem, Rajbag and Galjibag beaches you can take a boat trip with a local fisherman to see dolphins, go fishing, for a romantic sunset at sea, or take a picnic on a remote beach. The boats are small, but safe and can accommodate 2 to 12 people. Dolphin viewing and fishing trips take place early in the morning, 8am to 10am or 4pm to 6pm. Sunset trips from 4:30pm to 6:30pm. Picnic’s trips to Butterfly or Honeymoon beaches can take place any time from 8am to 14:00, and you set the pick-up time with boat captain. Contact Forest at Cafe Inn in Palolem for more info and prices.

Houses in Goa

The Lunch Club by KOKOindia offers a unique cultural experience ‘beyond the beach’. This elegant private day tour takes you to visit one of Goa’s epic mansions, proceeded by a scrumptious authentic five course Indo-Portuguese lunch in a gorgeous old Goan house at “Palacio do Deaos’. Contact KOKOindia for more information.

On the more adventurous side, there is Goa Jungle Adventure Day Tours based in Palolem beach and run by two French guides (also speaking English). They offer half and full day trips Canyoning and Rafting in the beautiful nature and jungles of south Goa. Contact Manu at Goa Jungle Adventure Day Tours for more information.

Explore South Goa

One of the best ways to explore south Goa is to rent a bicycle, scooter or motorcycle from Palolem and Agonda beach or through your local guesthouse. Bicycle rentals can be found in Palolem beach and start at 100 INR per day. Scooter bikes are 250 INR per day, and Motorcycles about 600 INR to 1000 INR per day.

Chaudi, Galjibag beach and more

There are many places to explore, like the main town of Chaudi for supplies or to experience Saturday market, the Water Reservoir, driving to Galjibag beach (turtle nesting site) for an authentic seafood lunch, to Cola beach to have lunch by a beautiful lagoon and stopping along the way to the Temple in the Jungle, or to visit Cabo da Rama Fort and beach. Just ask your guesthouse owner or any locals for directions.

South Goa Beaches

A nice way to explore the coastal landscape is to walk from the north end of Palolem beach to the south end of Rajbag beach. Along the way you will pass through Colomb and Patnem beaches, walk through villages and experience the local Goan fisherman life. The walk is about 5 miles there and back, or you can take a rickshaw back to your guesthouse from any of the south Goa beaches.

Goa Cuisine – Food, Dining and Restaurants in Goa

Goa is a food lover's paradise, offering a taste tour of Indian cuisine, alongside local specialities, fantastic fresh seafood and tropical fruits, as well as international food options to suit the palates of its two million visitors.

Goan Food

The food in Goa, as with anywhere in the world, is influenced by location and climate. This small coastal state relies heavily on fishing, so seafood is a major part of the diet. The land is planted with coconut palms and rice paddies, and so coconut (oil, milk, cream and alcohol) is an important ingredient in Goa recipes, and rice is the staple food. Various spices are used to give the food its intense flavours.

However, what makes Goan food so distinctive is that it is also heavily influenced by history. 450 years of colonization resulted in Goan cooking absorbing a strong Portuguese flavour. Local seafood, coconut, and tangy kokum were combined with palm vinegar (unknown elsewhere in India), chillies and cashew nuts (introduced by the Portuguese) and meats, especially pork, to produce one of the world’s original fusion foods.

To this day, Goan ‘fish curry rice’ - freshly caught fish, such as mackerel, in a hot and sour coconut gravy - is a daily meal.

Traditional Goan Dishes

Unlike much of Indian cuisine, Goan cooking uses a lot of meat and fish. Goan Catholics in particular have been heavily influenced by their Portuguese heritage, with famous fusion dishes including vindaloo, traditionally prepared with pork and vinegar, spicy chouriço sausages, and chicken xacuti with chillies and coconut milk - all dishes whose names and ingredients have their origins in Portuguese cuisine, but with a Goan twist. Mol De Peixe (fish pickle) and Balchao (prawn pickle) are popular accompaniments.

The catch of the day may include kingfish, pomfret, shark and mackerel, with seafood including crabs, prawns, oysters and squid. Seafood can be cooked in sour and spicy sauces such as ambot tik, or more delicate coconut based masalas, rava fried in semolina flour, or baked in a tandoori clay oven.

And for dessert, the Indo-Portuguese blend is again evident in Goa’s most famous pudding bebinca, a rich, layered egg custard with coconut.

Goa Street Food and Dhabas

If you’re hungry but don’t want a full meal, are on a tight budget, or just want to explore eating like a local, then a local dhaba or street food cart is the perfect food pit stop.

Street food carts can be found in most towns in the evening, serving anything from chouriço sandwiches to deep fried chillies. In India’s only beef loving state, beef Chamuças (a type of samosa) and beef croquettes are also a common sight.

Another firm favourite is the Raos Omelette, dipped in a spicy coconut-based gravy and garnished with lime and onions.

And every Goan village will have a dhaba serving chai and bhaji-pao - a pea and potato curry with local bread - for breakfast.

Dining and Restaurants in Goa resorts

While it’s worth seeking out some authentic Goan food whilst on holiday, restaurants in Goa cater to all tastes and palates - from budget south Indian Udupis dishing up vegetarian classics such as masala dosa to high-end establishments serving gourmet mediterranean food. However, most of the time you will probably eat at local beach shacks, or your beach resorts in-house restaurants, offering fresh fruit smoothies, snacks, Indian curries, and fresh seafood on the bbq.

And if you crave a taste of home, whether that’s Tel Aviv, London or Berlin, then a number of expat run cafes can satisfy your craving for hummus, fish & chips or just a really good cup of coffee.

Drinks in Goa

Goa’s popularity as a holiday destination is boosted by having the lowest rates of tax on domestic alcohol in India, from famous Kingfisher beer and Old Monk rum to a wide range of wines and spirits.

Goan Porto, a sweeter less refined version of its Portuguese namesake, can be found everywhere, alongside feni, the local speciality made from cashew nuts or coconuts. Every bar will have its distinctive own feni, whether double distilled or flavoured with spices, but beware - it’s an acquired taste and extremely potent!

For non-alcoholic refreshment, popular local drinks include Badam, an almond milk, or sweet yoghurt lassi, as well as the ubiquitous chai and fresh coconut water.

But on the beaches you’ll find a wide range of refreshing drinks, including lots of tropical fruit juices, and imported alcohol alongside the local alternatives. So why not invent your own cocktail and continue Goa’s rich history of flavour fusion!
